Oakland Leadership Center: Mentoring and Leadership Development for Young adults in East Oakland

Oakland Leadership Center is a faith based 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in East Oakland serving youth and young adults. We are inspired by the teachings of Jesus who inspires us to live with faith, hope and love.

We provide positive and healthy environments through basketball and music to reach out to young men in East Oakland.  The Oakland Independent Basketball League and OLC Music Labs are our front doors for the community. Real Talk events provide a platform for our elders to speak wisdom and life to young men. Mentoring and Life Coaching takes place one on one and in various group settings at OLC's storefront location at 5314 Fairfax Ave.  Our Leadership Training Program gives young men and women an opportunity to launch their own initiatives in the neighborhood that fit their own skills and passions, reaching back out to their peers and the youth.
